Aphrodite IX Movie Coming In 3-D

CGI Movie?

Aphrodite IX is coming to the big screen...in 3-D.  The Hollywood Reporter stated that Threshold Entertainment along with Platinum Studios and Top Cow are planning to adapt the character. 

Aphrodite IX is a cyborg assassin that would get her memory wiped after each mission.  She eventually develops self-awareness and realizes killing isn't what she wants to do.  With the desire to become human, she needs to figure out who she is and where she came from.
Threshold's Larry Kasanoff and Platinum chairman and CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg are producing. Top Cow CEO Marc Silvestri and former Universal Pictures exec Randy Greenberg of the Greenberg Group are executive producers. Top Cow president Matt Hawkins and Platinum's Rich Marincic are co-producing.

"This is just the kind of franchise we love: a visually stunning world, amazing effects, a great story and a hot, kick-ass babe in the lead," Kasanoff said. "What could be better?"

Maybe now we'll see the "Pilot Season" book by Dan Jevons and Eric Basaldua that was intended to be released in 2007.

NO WAY! How can a series that got canned in only 5 issues get a movie? Although I did enjoy it, and Aphrodite is pretty hot. In 3d too? they better get a bomb actress for it. I'd rather them make a good Witchblade movie though.

I completely agree, heck just do that one Witchblade story where Aphrodite was send to kill her!

Agreed.  And it was about 10 years ago.  So why are they dusting off this old chestnut, when Top Cow has got better & more recent chest nuts to offer??

And... Aphrodite IX had a plot?!

What's weird is when she appeared recently in Witchblade, Top Cow's biggest comic, it wasn't even her.  It was Aphrodite IV.  What's the difference?  Not exactly sure.  I missed out on the Aphrodite IX series.

Also, it wasn't exactly stated in the original article but this might be CGI.  That would make more sense with the 3-D part.  Not sure if that makes it a better idea or not.  At least it'd be more...realistic from a comic book perspective and they won't have to worry about having a green-haired chick running around in the "real world."

Because if they try to do with her like they did with Elektra's costume, the movie will be doomed to failure the minute we see the first pic of the actress in costume. & she needs large tits.

I agree with all you guys who want the witchblade movie instead, but witchblade is Top Cow's biggest success so that movie has to be done right.

I'm keeping my hopes up i like Aphrodite even if I prefer Witchblade. I'll be so pissed off if they screw up her movie, Witchblade deserves a movie done right.
 
Aphrodite deserves a good movie also. I hope they keep the guys responsible for Elektra the hell away from this project.

They probly are going with Aphrodite9 instead of Witchblade as both a test, & that it was probly cheaper to buy the rights to than Witchblade. Hell, maybe there is still some legal BS because of that tv show a few years back.
 
What I dont get is, what is the deal with having Aphrodite IV? Again, I assume legal BS that 9 cant be used because of a possible movie.
